Shopping Guide

What to Expect

So often our children only wear some of their clothes several times or simply grow out of them before we can even use them! Many toys are just played with a few times and then banished to a corner (insert frustrated sigh). Monkey in the Middle Consignment Event gives many families the opportunity to buy and sell these items that are in excellent condition. Particularly in these tough economic times… being able to make and save money is always a great thing!

Monkey in the Middle Consignment Event is a phenomenal way to shop for high quality gently used baby, kids (up to size 16) and maternity items!  Shopping our consignment event is a great way to buy high quality name brand items at 40-90% off retail! You will find clothing sizes Newborn to 16, maternity wear, shoes and accessories, strollers, baby gear, diaper bags, bedding, nursery and children’s furniture, toys (indoor and outdoor), books, DVDs, seasonal clothes(costumes, special occasion dresses, jackets, swimwear, etc.) and more!!

All of the merchandise is conveniently tagged, organized, and displayed by category. Clothes are all displayed on racks by gender and size. Shopping our consignment event couldn't be easier! You’ll go bananas over the incredible inventory and unbeatable prices

Hold Items

We will offer a holding area. The holding area is for larger items or for multiple items that can’t be carried. There are so many great items at amazingly LOW prices that often shoppers simply can’t carry everything around while they continue to shop.  Please note that there is a 1 hour time limit on items placed in the holding area. Also, please be mindful that the holding area is for items that you intend to purchase. We want to be fair to all of our shoppers by making inventory available for everyone to view and to have the chance to purchase.
